Iranian movie conquers int'l festivals

Tehran, Jan 1, IRNA- An Iranian short film titled “Are You Volleyball?” directed by Mohammad Bakhshi has smashed a record by hitting the silver screen in 250 international festivals, a movie advisor said on Tuesday.

Ahmad Shojaeian said, '2018 was a unique year for 'Are you Volleyball?' since the movie appeared at 248 international festivals and received over 70 awards.'

He said 2019 is also a good start for the movie and it has been admitted in two other festivals scheduled for January and February.

By being introduced to the silver screen in INDIE FILM FEST in February and in Los Angeles Cine Fest on January 26th, the short film will record its 250th international appearance, Shojaeian added.

The film is the story of a group of Arab-speaking asylum seekers who arrive in an English-speaking country but face closed border.

Conflicts break out between the asylum seekers and the border guards on a daily basis until finally some children provide a method of communication.
